Album Summary

>Wagner, Richard : The Flying Dutchman
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Wagner's early masterpiece is heard in an authoritative, truly classic performance from the composer's own theater in Bayreuth, Germany, the shrine and Mecca of the true Wagnerite. Some of the greatest singers of the era lead the cast, including the Canadian-American bass-baritone George London, the first American ever to sing the Dutchman at Bayreuth; the beloved Viennese soprano Leonie Rysanek, known as the "Queen of Hearts" at the Salzburg Festival; and German bass Josef Greindl, a stalwart of the Deutsche Oper, Berlin, where he sang in 1,369 performances, mostly Wagner. This is a live performance from 1959.
